Do you have a circuit-breaker in your house or is it old style fuse-board?

If the latter, check fuse in plug first. With multiple power-outs you could have tripped the fuse on one of the power ups.

the market virtually always telegraphs it's intentions, but this vital information cannot be found with traditional price charts

I've read john's stuff. I agree with all of it.

scholfield started this thread scanning the charts from Friday where I was out of power, looks like I would have lost money on CL at least (not checked other charts yet), so probably for the best, lol

scholfield started this thread And if nothing else, me and purplebrain are showing how LIVE calls should be made, lol. No ambiguous stuff. Clear as a bell.

''Long here at X'' (where X is usually exactly the current price)
stop and target at Y
Stopped out for -20

Difficult to say if they were tardes or not S.
You don't post any charts, reasons behind taking them etc. - so can't comment.

Anyway I like the result - from 12 trades in 2 days you got a small profit. That's good

I did intend to post the odd chart etc, but as you're maybe aware, i've had major technical difficulties!

Not that it really matters much, though. Everyone 'in teh know' seems to agree that charts are pointless.
